Deep in the heart of Queens is a three mile abandoned stretch of the Long Island Railroad that could soon become the borough’s newest green space – a Highline-style park called The QueesWay.

While some argue The QueensWay could benefit young families and civic organizations, others worry the park will bring undo negative attention to their sleepy neighborhoods.
